Steven points out in the comments of the previous post that the » isn’t working in Firefox. Arg. I suppose my site has always been like that for him, since that symbol isn’t a recent addition.
Here is what everyone “should” see:
And for the curious, this is what the site looks like on my machine, although I expect that the handwriting font only works for IE on Windows machines.
I hasten to add that ‘ol raquo and some of the other special chars were part of the original WordPress theme, to which I added all the stuff for my site. I assumed that the stuff they had would be fairly portable.
I can’t tolerate the thought of having my HTML showing in some browsers, so I’m going to have to fix this. But those special chars are used stinkin’ EVERYWHERE. This is going to take a while to clean up.
LATER: Ok, so I have Firefox up and running on my secondary machine. Seems like raquo works in some places and not others. Looks like the big problem is that firefox doesn’t like the way raquo is used as the bullet in a bullet list in the CSS. This is a stupid problem, since the bullets aren’t supposed to show up anyway. Grumble grumble….
MORE LATERER: Looks like it’s fixed. Looks good on a fresh install of Firefox, anyway. I’m thinking of getting rid of the handwriting font. It’s cool, but it only works in IE and it seems a bit gimmicky. I don’t know. Meh.
I didn’t try Opera, but nothing EVER looks right on opera to me.
